This is what Fall looks like ...

Living where we do, we have the city and the countryside at our fingertips altho sometimes it seems like such an effort to go out and find a new place to explore and it's easier just to stay close to home. This past weekend was rainy and we sent one grandmother home across the seas to South Africa, so we were happy just to be at home, just us, regrouping for a day ... but Monday was a public holiday and Clint took the day off too, so we set out to Croton Dam Gorge just half an hour upstate from us, to get the kids (and ourselves) out into some fresh air. I just wanted to share some photos with you ... Fall is in full swing.














We drove over new bridges ...


and stopped at new places ...

we saw a sign along the road for a farm selling Maple Syrup and we HAD to stop ... it's Hayden's staple food after all. 


And there among the wooden cabins was one stacked with pumpkins and the other held the maple syrup equipment with bottles for sale. I loved the glimpse of the the kayaks behind the flowers.

Then on to Muscoot Farm where the kids could say hello to the animals (again. we are regulars here after all!) ...


and grab a bit to eat ...


A really lovely family day out and much needed by all of us ... 

That's what Fall looks like around here.

Hang on... That place is half hour away... and you've only just thought to visit? Looks fantastic. It also looks the perfect place to visit at this time of year (which is Autumn) ;)
